What is there for children during the conference?

We want to make Rise Conference as accessible to families and children as possible, so that’s why we’ve created a fantastic children’s programme, Rise Kids Fest, for your children on the Saturday.

This programme is for children aged 4 – 11 years. For children under 4 years old, there will be a parenting room available throughout conference for you and your child to use. 

On Friday evening there will be no children’s programme running alongside the conference, but they are welcome to attend.

What is there for young people during the conference?

On Saturday afternoon there are specific sessions and socials planned for all the young people booked into conference. These youth sessions will take place between the end of the lunch break and the start of the final evening session of conference. Further details for parents will be available nearer to conference.

Is there anything specific for Young Adults?

After hours on Friday evening we will be hosting the Young Adults Collective. This is an opportunity for all young adults within the life of Influence Church to gather, connect and enjoy some food together. We’ll be hosting a Q&A and you can register for this during the conference booking.
